Dulaney the man for EMBDC chairmanship

By Staff
Oct. 10, 2001
Meridian businessman Tommy Dulaney brings a wealth of strengths to his new role as chairman of the East Mississippi Business Development Corp. As founder and president of Structural Steel Services, he knows the local workforce inside and out, and will be a good source of information for companies looking to relocate or expand.
Judging from his comments the other day, he sees a trained and loyal workforce as key to the success of any business venture. This nurturing aspect is very attractive in building a business that earns the respect of employees and, in turn, provides the outstanding products and services demanded by customers.
Dulaney took over the EMBDC chairmanship following the death of Glen Deweese, whose influence will likely continue to be felt in local economic development. Deweese, an active participant in civic and community affairs, died Sept. 27 and before his death had recruited Dulaney for the top job. Dulaney has the practical experience to take the organization to new heights.
With Dulaney taking the chairmanship, Wade Jones holding the EMBDC's presidency and a competent board helping reach out into the community, the cause of local economic development looks bright, even in a declining economy and uncertainty over global affairs.
